Helsinki's Hobbingen island

Suomenlinna is one of Helsinki's most important sights. The fortress island has a lot of history. It has been military base for Swedes and Russians and still is for Finns.

resemlance to Hobbingen in Suomenlinna

Suomenlinna has a lot to offer from beautiful cafés and restaurants to museums and of course the fortress. But on the far end of the island surrounded by the thick walls you can also find a very interesting landscape that reminds you imidiately of the Lord of the Rings books and movies. Here you get easily reminded of Hobbingen. Even a small lake with some benches around can be found. Those green hills are in fact bunkers that were used by the armys stationed here.

If you come to Suomenlinna check it out. And maybe shoot your own short hobbit video :)
